Quick response team for airslide

emergency breakdown

Pneuvay receives emergency breakdown repair and maintenance requests from time to time. Most of these types of breakdowns can be avoided with a preventative maintenance program in place where critical systems such air-slides can be regularly checked and inspected. Yet, sometimes unexpected failure can still occur resulting in an emergency. Read how we responded to an airslide emergency breakdown involving a number of air slides that had failed at plant earlier this year.

Proactive airslide system maintenance

to avoid unwanted downtime

An airslide system had been efficiently delivering cement from silos into delivery vehicles for over 20 years. The plant and equipment had been diligently inspected and maintained all year round. However, the company felt the need to consult the condition of their airslide system to pneumatic conveying experts - Pneuvay Engineering.

Pneuvay conducted an inspection and assessed the situation. They reported that various repair and modifications had to be scheduled as part of preventative maintenance on the airslide systems. But before the work could be carried out, unexpected breakdowns on several air slides prompted the company and Pneuvay to expedite the work.

Here is a glimpse on how Pneuvay quickly and efficiently handled the system repair and modifications in just eight (8) days.
